BASS: TKAY MAIDZA

tkaymaidza

Shortly before she heads out on tour with Years and Years, the much hyped Tkay Maidza is doing some headline UK headline dates. The Australian rapper / singer has picked up love from the likes of The Guardian and Noisey and has been compared to MIA and Azealia Banks, although we’d also chuck in some MNDR and Angel Haze comparisons.

She played The Great Escape in Brighton last night and heads to London’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen tomorrow night (Sunday). We’ll be down the front and we urge you lot to do so too! She also plays Vice’s Party on 29th may at the OBL.

Here’s her recent banger M.O.B:

BANDS: Papa – I Am The Lion King

This duo from LA make infectious pop-rock influenced by Modest Mouse and early Kings of Leon goodness. Plus they’re so hot you could fry an egg on their faces. We give you, Papa. 

 

Hailing from LA and sounding like The Killers and KOL had some sexy babies, Papa are the perfect mix of summertime blues meets road trip rock. Listen to them with the wind in your hair and a beer in your hand and you won’t be disappointed. 

Having sourly missed their sneaky show in London two weeks ago before heading back to the US, we’re pleased to inform that this beard brigade are returning to Madame JoJo’s on August 21st, and we’ll be in the front row. 

Check out the wonderfully named ‘ I Am The Lion King’ and the infectious little fucker that is ‘Put Me To Bed’ below.

MMX – Ritual

Having missed their somewhat secret show at The Great Escape, we’ve settled to listening to the spellbinding Ritual from mysterious pop foursome MMX on repeat in the BXB office. Above the insanely catchy melodies a stunningly dark vocal is what sticks with this track, almost reminiscent of an early Chris Martin with edge. As the chorus slams in, awash with indie pop goodness, you find yourself tripping over each beautiful chord and heartfelt lyric. We don’t know if it’s just us feeling a bit emotional after the weekend’s frivolities, or this is something truly special. We favor the latter.

Check out the video for Ritual below, and listen to their 4 track EP ‘Child’.

BANDS: Lissie – Shameless

SHE’S BACK. It’s been 3 long, cold, relentless years without her but Lissie finally returns with her new single Shameless. Sporting a hot new haircut and sounding more like Emily Haines than I remember, Shameless is released on 16th April and is the first cut from her upcoming studio album (yippee). It’s no When I’m Alone, but it’s a promising little tune and to be honest, we’re just glad she’s back.
